Over time asbestos roofs can get porous, meaning cracks develop and leaks are likely to occur. This brings not only a pause in business as usual, but left undeterred a leak can threaten the integrity of the whole structure. What starts as a trickle could eventually bring the whole place down. A leak must be dealt with quickly, but many building owners are reluctant to face the costs of dismantling and disposing of their leaking asbestos roof.

Waterproof coatings: Asbestos roof repair is easier than you think

Specialist roof coatings provide immediate weatherproofing and are a cost-effective solution for anything between emergency asbestos roof repair and long-term asbestos roof refurbishment. They're applied as a liquid by roller or spray gun, and cure to form a watertight membrane that rejuvenates your roof, as well as sealing off the harmful asbestos fibres in the cement.

Don't let a good roof down

The major component of asbestos roof sheets is concrete (approx. 88%). Concrete has been around since the Roman times and we can still find structures from that time around today. This is a good example that clearly shows how looking after your roof could last for many more decades. It also means this will be a lot more durable than modern steel roofs which can start rusting away after a few short years. Coatings are an ideal solution to a leaking asbestos roof, and can ensure you get many more years from your current roof.
